4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Jan. 7 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Abstract Design and How to Create It (Paperback)
This book is a little wordy but very good. The text is a bit hard to follow so I suggest being well read for this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Little Book, Jan. 16 2000

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Abstract Design and How to Create It (Paperback)
The back cover says it all: "Students, designers, and craftspeople who want to create their own abstract patterns and designs will find this profusely illustrated guide one of the best books availabe on the subject. After an introductory chapter dealing with the geometric basis of design, the author goes on to discuss implements and their uses, borders, textile patterns, nature study and treatement."
"Over 300 illustrations include many diagrams, designs for title pages, border patterns, allover patterns, textile patterns and historical examples from an extraordinary number of cultures and periods...Thorough and comprehensive, [this book] will be an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to learn the principles and techniques of creating nonrespresentative designs."
To which I will add, the illustrations are nice as they include a little block showing you how it was drawn, and sometimes giving variations (positive vs negative, simple vs complex, etc). A large part of the book is spent showing textile patterns. I think maybe that was the original bent of the author. But there are also lots of lovely border designs, too.
Well worth the price!
